Massachusetts: At night Elizabeth Hubbard, one of the afflicted girls of Salem, claims to see the apparition of “a little black bearded man” wearing black who introduces himself as George Burroughs, the former minister of Salem Village accused of witchcraft on April 30 and currently being brought to Salem from his home in Maine to be examined, and offers her a book with lines “red as blood” for her to sign.  Unlike some of the other girls, Hubbard has heretofore never seen Burroughs in either the physical or spectral worlds.
